Er, his name is Adam, if anyone wants to know...very good expert in technology.
i recently bought a new one
Worst Nightmare, like you I recently bought a new one because the Yamaha HTR-5590 just sounded flat sometimes.  I use to have a state of the art system in my teenage years before marriage, and I felt it was time to move up a notch in sound quality.  I relayed my desire to a local dealer which is Audio Connection.  Luckily he has been around for years and knew exactly what I meant.  He turned me on to Nad and let me take one home to try.  Thats all it took.  I ordered the 7.1 AV Surround Sound Receiver Nad T773.  I love it.

It's one of my all-time favorites.
The DTS track on the Special Edition kicks ass.
I actually thought the transfer was was better than most people say it was, The Blacks looked fine on my TV.
Yes, it isn't as bright as the previous transfer yet it still looked pretty good, The only problem with it I thought was at the start of Chapter 15 where it looked washed out and overbright but after the shot(Spoiler!) of Mr. Orange walking to the table then it instantly goes away.

I plan on getting a reciever soon:
Here's a picture:

7.1 amps are getting quite cheap here - I have seen them for around $600 AUS for a Sony unit....

 I paid lots of $ for my set..that's why I don't have that many DVDs.  I will never get 7.1 unless I win the lottery and I can afford a huge living room.
I guess I'm not the only one with Satellite Speakers (Sony, by the way).
I bought in 2001, my very first Dolby Digital/DTS Receiver from Sony - 120 watts. Since then I've changed so many sony speakers, it's not funny. I'm happy that I now have the right combination, and all speakers are 120 watts (2 front large, 2 satellites at the back and a matching centre and sub.) The Satellite speakers I bought this year are three way compared to my old speakers (one), so the sound is much smoother, louder and clearer.
I don't think I'll be upgrading from 5.1 to 6.1 or 7.1 anytime soon. Don't need it and don't have the room, let alone want another amplifier.

I bought it because it was only $199 USD and I thought it sounded excellent. Of course, I do plan on upgrading to something better once I get my widescreen TV, but for now it gets the job done.
My dad chose it. And I also have a Sony surround sound for my basement.
And Gents, any particular reason why you chose them?
I have a Pioneer 1000 Watts Home Theater System.
I have a Panasonic.
What home theatre amplifier/reciever do you have and why did you choose it?
Hi all,
Just thought 'd post a quick thread to hear your feedback on amps.
I have an Onkyo TX-SR800 Reciever amp that has 7.1 out put. The clarity on it's output is fantastic and a great improvement over the Sony I used to have - the Sony had a "boomy" bottom end. I do have some hi-end Polk Audio speakers on it though which does help.
Rated for Super CD (10hz to 100khz - not that you would hear it) it was one of the best sounding amps on the market a year ago when I bought it.
What do you guys have and think?
